Due to this, the actor has received a number of messages requesting him to come and meet them when the film premiers. However it seems Fazal won’t be able to make the event on this occasion. “I don’t know if I can make the trip now, but I do hope, in the near future I will be able to. Until then, I hope for the best from the Pakistani censor board,” Fazal was reported expressing.
Talking about the ban, Fazal went on to say, “I stand by my country, but we must also understand that art must flow freely. Strangling art is death of time.”
The ban on Hindi films being released in Pakistan was due to the rising tension between the country and India.
